The meaning of "Procedure" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa (For procedure, doctor said that 'is there a particular kind of music you have on' to his patient. And he answer 'Brahms music)
Doctor : He composed his best piece for organ, but they never said which organ?
Patient : Is that a liver joke or a penis joke??
A: More context would help, but maybe the patient is there for liver surgery? Hence the reference to the liver. The play on words is that an organ is an instrument (keyboard, large pipes in a church), but it is also a vital body part (liver, heart, spleen, etc). However technically the penis is also an organ, just an external one. Anyways, for some reason the patient is making a "dirty" joke lol.
Q: O que significa forcing them to submit to a procedure widely identified with criminals?
A: In Canada and the U.S., usually only two sets of people « get fingerprinted, » I.e., have to let someone make a record of their fingerprints.

So having to be fingerprinted is connected with the idea of being a criminal (or accused of being a criminal). So fingerprinting is associated mentally with, is identified with — connected closely in people’s thinking — with criminals (with being accused of being a crimjnal; with being identified as someone suspicious who needs to be tracked.
